Steve Smith's Hands


A lot of musicians have chops. And some have consistently good musical taste. Not many have both but Steve does, in spades. His chord voicings are exquisite and his hands on the keyboard are a beautiful thing to watch. He's had a long and successful career back east and we are very fortunate to have him here with us on Gabriola. He's at Raspberry's every Sunday and various other gigs around the island so you locals should get out and hear this man play. The rest of the world can sample his music here

Number 2 in the Musician's Hands series

V- Depth of field abbrev. What is going on. Musicians hands reminds me our own Blues festival is due and many hands will make light work and I will have plenty of work on. His nails struck me. Are they manicured?
